Makeup Monday - Winterize Your Skin

Monday, January 19, 2015

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.  



Week 32 - Easy Steps to Winterize Your Skin

During the winter our skin tends to get very dry if you live in an area that gets cold in the winter.  It is very important to keep your skin hydrated.  Here are some easy ways to have soft skin for winter.

1.  Drink Plenty of Water - This helps us stay hydrated internally during the winter. 

2.  Exfoliate Your Skin - This is a great way to get rid of dead skin cells and flaky skin.  Try doing this at least once a week or once every two weeks.

3.  Moisturize Face and Body - Using your favorite face and body cream is essential to having soft skin in the winter.  There are parts of your face and body that can get very dried out and by doing this it can help that problem.  To see the post on my favorite creams you can click here.

4.  Keep Hands and Feet Hydrated - Using a good hand cream is important in winter.  Two of my favorite hand creams are L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream and Keihl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve.  To see the post I did on Makeup Monday - Favorite Hand Creams you can click here.

5.  Hydrate Your Lips - Keeping our lips hydrated during the winter is very important since they can become chapped and very dried out.  I love using Chapstick and eos evolution of smooth for daytime and nighttime use.

6.  Use Sunscreen -  The suns rays are still effective in the winter especially if skiing or outside for long periods of time.

These are just a few easy ways that we can keep our skin looking soft and smooth for the winter.      

Thanks for stopping by and see you all next time for Makeup Monday.

  1. It gets very dry here in Michigan during the winter. Love these tips. The water drinking is hard for me, since I prefer hot liquids to keep warm; sometimes I drink hot water with lemon in it. And the grapefruit-flavored eos is lovely! I keep lip balm everywhere!
    Have a good week Julie, and stay warm! xo Deborah

  4. I like Chapstick. I also like Carmex Moisture. Eos is my daughter's FAVORITE and my DIL likes SoftLips. :) Hubby's a fan of anything strong... Burt Bees is pretty strong. :) And waving hello while I'm here!

  6. Great tips, Julie! I am always putting Chapstick on since my lips get quite dry here in the mountains. I don't know what I would do with out it... And speaking of exfoliating, I should do that tonight :) Thanks for the reminder.

    Hugs to you!

  7. This is such great info no matter where you live. I love using mineral makeup because it has some sun protection. And I always have on chapstick. Enjoy your day my friend! Hugs!

  8. Hi Julie! I love those EOS lip balms - I also have recently made one of my own using beeswax and it works great. I will have to look for that Shea Butter hand cream you mentioned - I have made one that I use at night and it works well but kind of greasy for daytime.

  9. Hello Julie, I always like to see the tips on keeping our skin soft and not chapped! I did try my hand at that heart pattern that was featured. Not sure if its working yet! I am thirsty now, so I had better drink my water!

  10. Good post, Julie! I like Bath and Body Works with shea butter (the cream, not the lotion, for my body and hands. If my hands and cuticles especially are really dry, I use Curel Intensive therapy cream. This year my lips have been a problem and I'm using Blistex and A & D ointment. A humidifier in the house helps too! Have a good week!

  12. Hi Julie, this are all great tips and do work to keep skin healthy in the dry cold months of winter. I used to work in skin care and makeup artistry and we taught the very same things along with never sleeping in makeup and always use your eye cream. LOL

    Thanks for sharing. I am enjoying your beauty posts.
    Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comment.
    Have a great evening.
    Hugs

  13. Great tips, Julie! I wish I could drink more water, but I just don't crave it, (like I do coffee!), which of course, is not great for one's skin! Thanks for sharing and hope you have a lovely Thursday!

  21. I'm so terrible at winterizing my skin. I grew up in Hawaii so I never really had to think about it, but even the mild SoCal winter dries out my skin, so this is a good reminder for me.
